Digital tools exist for creating practically every type of artistic, creative, or communicative digital artifact, including pictures, music, video, and computer animation. This project aims to create a combined AI-HCI tool to improve creativity in digital filmmaking such as machinima. It provides a hand-tracking interface that allows camera control in a real-time 3D render engine, as well as other interfaces that allow for easy experimentation with scenery and puppet animation in 3D.
